Newly acquired by the Met in 2017, Hedda Sterne’s New York #2 (1953) is exhibited for the first time in this major ongoing exhibition. In the museum’s audio guide, curator Kelly Baum draws attention to Sterne’s fascination with the urban environment, including a clip of the artist describing how her artistic practice was influenced by her immigration to New York in 1941.
